Capital City Fruit Offers Produce Solutions to Help You Grow
As a solutions-focused company, we understand that keeping your customers happy and increasing profitability is key. Renaming an existing problem is not an option, which is why we begin our process by identifying root causes and supply chain inefficiencies. We work with you to establish and execute a customized plan that will drive customer satisfaction, acquisition and retention while increasing profitability. Utilizing our farm network and our repacking and distribution expertise, we help you achieve your strategic goals using produce as the vehicle for growth.
Solving Supply Chain Issues Long-Term
Ever wonder why you are spending less and not making more on produce? Whether your issues lie deep within your business’s operation, or your supplier has let you down one too many times with late or incorrect shipments, your customers shouldn’t have to feel shorted. As a spec-driven company, we deliver even the most difficult produce items at the size and stage you require. We’ve spent the last 70 years refining our role in the North American farm-to-fork supply chain process to ensure we can execute and consistently deliver to our customers’ specifications.
